The University of Gloucestershire and Imperial College London are coordinating new research announced by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) exploring ways in which trees, woods and forest can help address climate change.
CCRI’s Dr Julie Urquhart has been appointed to the newly formed Trees and Woodlands Scientific Advisory Group (TAW-SAG), established to provide expert scientific input to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to inform the England tree planting programme.
Defra have published CCRI research how professional fishers and recreational anglers participate in the management and science of fisheries in England.
As SURE-Farm is coming to an end, the CCRI released a booklet summarizing the key results and messages from the work conducted since 2017. The booklet reports impacts and recommendations for the social, economic and environmental context of the East of England arable farming system.
Next week a Climate Exp0 is taking place as a warm-up to the UN’s COP26 Climate Change Conference. CCRI’s Julie Urquhart will be chairing a session related to the Future of UK Treescape’s project.
A new article written by Damian Maye and Julie Urquhart has just been published in the Journal of Rural Studies that seeks to examine the online discourses regarding sustainable meat consumption by analysing a range of ‘hashtags’.
A number of CCRI researchers are authors of a chapter in a new book entitled ‘Researching People and the Sea: Methodologies and Traditions’.
We are very pleased to recognise the achievements of Julie Ingram and Julie Urquhart with their promotions and to welcome two new members of staff to the team.
The latest edition of the journal ‘Eurochoices’ is a Special Issue that focusses on the EU Horizon 2020 project ‘SURE-Farm’ (Towards SUstainable and REsilient EU FARMing systems).
This month, Julie Urquhart will take part in an online festival that re-visits and celebrates an event that took place in 1995 – the first International Children’s Conference on the Environment.
